MS Dhoni once again produced a batting masterclass to take Chennai Super Kings (CSK) home against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the DY Patil Sports Academy. The game went to the wire when the former CSK unleashed a carnage to outsmart the opponents.
Chasing a moderate total of 156 runs, Rohit Sharma and Co. had put on a brilliant fight to take the game deep into the 20th over. The Super Kings needed 17 runs off the final six and Jaydev Unadkat got a bright start to the over, trapping Dwaine Pretorius in the first ball.
Veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo did the smart work putting back MS Dhoni on strike and the master did the rest in sublime style. He struck a six over the bowler’s head and followed it up with a boundary over the short fine-leg’s head.
The 40-year-old sneaked in a double to bring the equation to four runs needed of one ball and MS Dhoni did the unthinkable. Probably, only Dhoni could have done it and he did it in some style. The former India captain once again proved why he is the best finisher of the current generations.
Meanwhile, fans went gaga seeing Dhoni shine once again on a cricket field and steered Chennai Super Kings back to the winning ways. Incidentally, they have secured their second win of the season after seven outings in IPL 2022.
